    Get it now?

    Or should one merely respond to "liberals abhor a free market" with a nice, simple, unquestioning "Yes! They do! Evidence to the contrary DOES NOT FOLLOW!"?

    Wow.
    i think I've figured out your brilliant strategy.

    You are trying to demonstrate that smoking pot leads to the inability to think clearly, and that it therefore should continue to be illegal.

    In fact, I did not say that.

    Yes, you did.
    Where did I say that?

    I merely pointed out where it was conservatives and Republicans not only screaming FOR less of a free market, but blaming the less-free market on Dems!
    And I merely pointed out that such things do not exist outside of your imagination.


    Get it now?
    I've always gotten it. The problem is that you have still done nothing to support your position. You have displayed that you may be experiencing some visual hallucinations about what I have said, but that doesn't prove your position in any way. It only indicates that you may need to do something about those apparent hallucinations.

    Or should one merely respond to "liberals abhor a free market" with a nice, simple, unquestioning "Yes! They do! Evidence to the contrary DOES NOT FOLLOW!"?

    One should merely respond to what was written, not the apparent visual hallucinations one is experiencing.

    I think he's under the impression that marijuana is a hallucinogen, then.

    See? You did say liberals abhor a free market.

    I merely pointed out that there is no such thing as a free market and that it's been conservatives and Republicans blaming lack of regulation (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and Bill Clinton signing the repeal of Glass-Steagall (deregulating banks) for the housing collapse and economic crash of 2008.

    So how is liberals who abhor a free market?

    Actually, it has been the Democrats position that deregulation("lack of regulation") was responsible for the housing bubble. But why split hairs over such minor discrepancies?

    Yep, he believes in the "Rob Peter to pay Paul" adage, which we clearly know doesn't work. The war on drugs has been a miserable, costly failure. The same nonsense that happened with Alcohol Prohibition is playing itself out again with pot...and actually most all drugs.

    This is America Damnit! Where there's a market for something...be it legal or illegal, there will always be somebody willing, for enough money, to supply a market...regardless of what is.

    IMHO, Digsbe is gonna be so on the wrong side of history in this matter.

    Actually, you should read the entire post including the thing he's clearly responding to and is the clear reference point for "They". Note the quote he included in his post:

    Of course. They abhor a free market.
    They = "Left wing socialists"

    Which is what makes this so hillarious. You'v spent the past few posts bitching about some Republicans calling Obama a Socialist...while you yourself took a comment aimed at "left Wing Socialists" and construed it to mean "liberals", thereby yourself declaring that "liberals" are "left wing socialists".

    Re: Do you support federal marijuana legalization?

    I wish to god that the media would stop calling it marijuana. There is no such plant species called marijuana. It's called CANNABIS. Get it right.

    I support full legalization of cannabis with taxation controls similar to tobacco. You can grow tobacco for personal use so you should be able to do the same with cannabis. It used to grow wild in the U.S. so this would not be a problem.

    As for other drugs, I support decriminalization of small amounts intended for personal use as Portugal and Spain have done. All the evidence shows it results in a decrease of use and increase in recovery of addicted populations. Throwing people in jail for small amounts on charges of felony possession is a crime against humanity rivaled only by the execution laws in southeast Asia. It's time to stop the draconian war on drugs and use that money to build a better society.

    Additionally, the scheduling of certain drugs needs to be changed so that continued research can be conducted into therapeutic uses. All the modern research reaffirms that MDM- class drugs, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, ketamine, DMT, iboga and other psychedelics have immense potential in mental health when administered in therapeutic doses under professional care, particularly in the areas of PTSD, depression, social anxiety, and end of life resolution. DMT, ibogaine and ketamine have shown absolutely astounding ability to reverse addiction.

    There is no longer any scientifically sound justification for the cruel punishments and draconian laws of the DEA.

    It's hilarious on more levels than just that, though.

    First level: Left-wing socialists do abhor a free market. The claim I was making would never be viewed as offensive by a socialist, as they would readily agree with it.
    Second level: I was using the rhetorical device of irony to make my point in this thread.
    Third Level: It was irony because it was directed at someone who calls Obama a socialist for stupid reasons (and it certainly wasn't X factor I was referring to, it was "my left-wing friend").
    Fourth level: As you noted, by pretending that I was doing what he claims to oppose, danbury ended up doing exactly that which he claims to oppose.

    And thus the self-pwnge was complete.
